** And let's not forget about poor Dwayne. He's suicidal at the ''start'' of the game, and that's before [[spoiler:you give him a letter suggesting that he's been recognized for a novel invention. One wonders [[FridgeHorror how he'll feel once he gets to Baltimore...]]]]

* BagOfSharing: The game has the characters in three separate time zones, but they can share items by putting them into the time-travelling port-o-johns that are central to the plot. However, you can't pass every item or living things (sometimes requiring a different method of getting them through time), and some of them change when you do this. One of the first puzzles is allowing Laverne to even get to her Chron-O-John to receive items, since she gets stuck in a tree upon first arriving in the future.

** The protagonists frequently try to distract other characters using the "look behind you, a three-headed monkey" line from ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland''. If you try it on Future Purple Tentacle in the end, when [[spoiler: the protagonists have seemingly merged into a three-headed primate, he responds: "The only three-headed monkey here is in front of me!"]]

* OffscreenTeleportation: When Bernard and Dr. Fred go look for the plans, the latter goes up the stairs. If Bernard immediately picks up the plans that are hanging on the wall, Dr. Fred will then come out from the left of the screen. See TookAShortcut below.

**When Bernard frees the tentacles, Purple bounces away, vanishing in the darkness. They are in a basement where the only access is a tight set of stairs. Somehow, Bernard and Green immediately give up chasing him, even though he couldn't have gotten away so fast, especially being a tentacle creature with a sticky bottom that slows his movement. Green follows him alone, making a few slimy splashing sounds until he disappears in the darkness as well.
When Dr Fred turns the lights seconds later, both tentacles are nowhere to be seen, even though they couldn't have gotten away so fast.
